I loved Alina and her arc, I loved the world building and the building threat of the Darkling and I loved Tamar and Tolya. I didn't love Mal or Nikolai, Mal annoyed me at the end <when he was all whiny and I didn't like Nikolai's charisma and sarcasm. I know that's why people love him, but he just felt arrogant and rude, and I hated his and Alina's romance. >I did like when he was more serious and we saw more depth in him. 
<PS, the ending of this book really reminded me of the end of catching fire and mockingjay>

Once again, Leigh Bardugo has done it and produced a fantastic and gripping piece of fantastical fiction for the world to enjoy.

The action definitely heats up in this one with the introduction of Sturmhond and the whole Pirates, nichevo’ya, and Rusalye arcs.

It’s so wonderful to dive back into the mind of Alina Starkov as she tries to escape the dark forces after her and her strained relationship with her old friends. While it was a little slower pace-wise than Shadow and Bone it was still wonderfully written and I absolutely loved the new characters we got to meet in this novel.

The ending also was insane and I cannot wait to finish Ruin and Rising and find out what happens!
